After a series of conversations with Bret, who was on the computer at home, we decided to make a run for it. Yeah, it sounds a little boring right now, but at the time it was scary and exciting and I haven't driven in snow probably for 35 years. Bret was watching the web cams and weather reports and calling us to get what seemed like minute by minute reports. You're laughing I know. But it was a big deal. Chains. Good gravy. Snow. It's May for Pete's sake.
Anyway, as ridiculous as it seems now, it was snow! WE DROVE IN SNOW.
Then after the snow was Nevada. I'm not sure which was more challenging but believe me Nevada stretches out for miles I tell you, relentless miles, punctuated by the "No services" signs.
This may be the best thing about Nevada.
After a few hours of Nevada, hours that stretch on like days, you get to Utah. And the amazing Salt Flats.
I need to investigate the whole mirage thing. That just wowed me. And today coming home, all different mirages. It was like being in the set of a sci-fi movie.
Pictures aren't great, it was an overcast trip. Stay tuned, I'll be making more excuses for bad photos soon. Lots to report, lots of photos.
I'VE MISSED YOU!
